Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2006
2006 Margerum Sauvignon Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 850 cases producedIt all started with M5 and it will become manifest with the release of BER (my super Syrah, a partially co-fermented blend from the seven Syrah vineyards I work with) which is being released this fall. I find I can make more interesting, additionally complex wines blending my top vineyards while still making vineyard specific wines in smaller quantities to preserve terroir. In 2006, I blended the three Sauvignon Blanc vineyards I work with in the Santa Ynez Valley to produce my best Sauvignon Blanc to date. It is a blend of 55% McGinley Vineyards, 38% Purisima Mountain Vineyard, and 7% Vogelzang Vineyard. The wine is crisp and clean; there are hints of melon, green grass, some fruit cocktail, and a clear minerality on the nose. It's more Pouilly-sur-Loire-like than New Zealand-ish this year. NOTE: Westerly Vineyard was sold in 2006 and it is now called McGinley Vineyard.
We are a small producer of Syrah, a Rhone style blend called M5, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and a few other varietals. Our grapes are purchased from the finest growers in Santa Barbara County. In addition, we are beginning to import a few exceptional wines we have found in our travels to the wine regions of Italy and France.
